Governor Doug Ducey Appoints Bryan Chambers to Serve through 2016

PHOENIX – Changes in State Bar of Arizona leadership are on the horizon as president Bryan Chambers has been appointed to serve the remainder of Judge Peter Cahill's term as Gila County Superior Court Judge.

Bryan Chambers, who was recently sworn in on June 26 as the Bar's 83rd Board of Governors president, will leave his position to serve as Gila County Superior Court Judge through 2016.

News of Governor Ducey's appointment is a welcomed surprise to the State Bar of Arizona.

"The State Bar is proud of Bryan's appointment. Although we'll miss having him serve as our president, we're confident Bryan will continue to make great contributions not only to legal community, but to the state of Arizona as well," said John Phelps, CEO and Executive Director.

"Having served on the Board of Governors since 2004 has been one of the highlights of my legal career," Chambers said. "While I had been looking forward to helping implement the Bar's strategic plan over the coming year. I am grateful for the opportunity Governor Ducey has given me to serve Gila County on the Superior Court bench."

"Bryan is well-known for his legal abilities and for having a diverse legal background," Governor Ducey said. "I am impressed with Bryan's involvement with the State Bar of Arizona, ultimately rising to the position of Board of Governors president. I'm confident he will make an excellent contribution to the people of Gila County."

Chambers' last day as Board President is Aug. 31, 2015. The Board of Governors is expected to elect his replacement at its July 23 board meeting.   back...
